Default Is it worth it to pay another $1700 for added two yr warranty service on a Honda CRV ?

If it comes with the 5 yr warranty already?

how many miles do you drive in a years time? if your mileage is below average, then the extended warranty would be unnecessary for the most part, the average cost of repairs would be lower, and the amount you would spend on the warranty would probably outweigh the cost of any repairs you might need. keep in mind that its a gamble either way. but i think the risk is relatively low, besides, honda will repair most major items even after the factory warranty has expired just to maintain the customer service reputation that they have.

I have driven only Honda for 20 years, I have never needed an extended warranty. Matter of fact: I have never had any major problem with a Honda in that whole time and I put 380,000 miles on my last civic, with regular maintenance and preventative stuff like new timing at 150,000 etc. I would not do it. I cant remember the last time I used the first 5 years. If there is anything really wrong with your new CRV you will find out within the first year/10,000miles. Good Luck!

Absolutely not! This is a dealer add-on--pure mark up. Plus, it's a Honda. It would likely take over a decade--if ever-- to run up $1700 in repair bills. If you would choose to ignore this advice, be sure to get the undercoating and paint protection, too. :-)
